    Quoted from Aussiepinwiz:

    I know a lot of people are in your situation!
    What happens to pinball manufacturing when 1,000 other enthusiasts also run out of room in the coming years?
    Will there be enough new enthusiasts joining their ranks to buy the new pins?

    I'm in the same situation. I can squeeze one more pin in, but then that's it! I only buy new machines. I'm not interested in the old ones. And I want to keep the ones I have!

    Maybe my husband will build me an extension to the house?

    My friends love my machines, but none of them look like buying one. I'm not sure if more enthusiasts will replace the ones who are also starting to run out of room.
